Smoked Salmon and Blue Cheese Canapes Recipe

Do you have brunch on Mother’s Day? This seems to be a pretty common tradition for the day we honor our mothers; although my family has never celebrated with a yearly brunch- I don’t know why! What better way to celebrate your mom then making her a delicious meal or taking her to a Mother’s Day brunch at a restaurant? I will definitely have to start the tradition this year for my mom.

When I was searching for local restaurants that host Mother’s Day brunches, the foods that were most commonly served were eggs benedict, smoked salmon, prime rib and mimosas. That sounds like a delicious menu to me! You can also make an easy and delicious Mother’s Day brunch at home with these Litehouse recipes. Many of these recipes are designed by the Litehouse bloggers to be both quick and healthy, so kids can also help prepare them for Mom!
